An Evening of Lore!

Nissy and Nelson reunite after 12 years.
Nelson Vails our guest!

A beautiful night in an elegant venue,

to our old river city,

Tim Sicocan of Blazer Boys and Girls Club.
Nissy Cobb was the Master of Ceremonies in an event that not only featured the great Nelson Vails, but luminaries of the Lore of Cyclisme as well.

Hilarious and on message, Jake Hanson!
Aside from herself, Jake Hanson, and Nils Tillstrom also spoke. Jake was recently an Oregon Cup Winner in 2011.
Nils Tillstrom told tales of THE MOJO SQUAD of 14years back.
Nils raced with GB Cyclisme in the late 90's, with b.i.k.e./Hincapie in 2003-2005, and again in 2011.

A glowing testemonial from b.i.k.e.'s biggest partner, Blazer Boys and Girls Club Manager, Tim Sicocan made donors feel generous.

Keegan poses with Pan AM Champs,
Vails and Beckman.
His club has been enjoying b.i.k.e's presentation of after school programming called "Roller's 101" for two years now.
The feeling in the room was warm and fun.

And finally the Cheetah himself, an American Hero, Nelson Vails took the stage.

He made the night truly special.
